your stay sounds alot like mine. i also just wanted some relief. i also met a very sweet schizophrenic man who i ended up writing about a lot. and a woman withdrawing from alcoholism...i couldn't stop crying about her situation w/ an abusive boyfriend, but i think also i was crying for myself.
i'm glad the stay was a good thing for you. mine was too. we're lucky, i think.
i LOVE that exercise where a ferocious animal comes to protect you. that helps me a lot...with the mouse, maybe you could ask a friend to come over and clean out the kitchen area for you and stuff steel wool in the nooks and crannies to keep it away? i'm thinking about doing that myself since ive seen droppings under my sink & they freak me out.
hang in there and color lots!
